Four Riske Creek cousins had big seasons this year in the Little Britches Rodeo Association.

Brothers Brandon Loring and Tanner Loring, and Kagen Russell and Denten Russell finished among the top cowboys in their respective divisions following the season-end event this past month at the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Grounds in Barriere.

Denten and Tanner, both nine years old, compete in the junior boys division.

Denten competes in stake race, goat tail tying and steer riding, and finished the weekend placing fifth in the stake race Saturday and fifth in the goat tail tying Sunday. After just starting to steer ride this season, Denten got his fourth steer Sunday, however, did not make the whistle.
